IBM Adds to FlashSystem Storage Line 

ARMONK, N.Y. — IBM is introducing three products to its FlashSystem storage line.

IBM released its FlashSystem Cyber Vault and a pair of new FlashSystem arrays, the 7300 and 9500, including third-generation FlashCore Modules, according to the company this month.

FlashSystem Cyber Vault is designed to streamline all phases of cyber attack recovery and reduce overall recovery time.

By actively monitoring data in real-time, FlashSystem Cyber Vault is designed to accelerate ransomware recovery based on validated restore points, allowing organizations to more rapidly recover a clean copy of their data.

FlashSystem Cyber Vault automatically scans the copies created by IBM Safeguarded Copy for FlashSystem arrays, looking for signs of data corruption introduced by malware or ransomware. 

The latest FlashSystem storage models, based on IBM Spectrum Virtualize to provide a single and consistent operating environment, are designed to increase cyber resilience and application performance within a hybrid cloud environment.

The arrays deliver scalable performance and capacity, 1 PB per rack unit, addressing the performance demands of critical and operational workloads, without compromising their efficiency goals. 

IBM Storage Expert Care offers additional optimized and flexible services for maintaining IBM FlashSystem. 

Clients choose a level support on the IBM FlashSystem 7300 or 9500, which helps reduce the threat of outages, while keeping IT staff “focused on mission-critical goals.”  

“As companies are under increasing security threats, they must anticipate and prepare for cyber attacks, in addition to maximizing business agility of day-to-day operations,” said Denis Kennelly, GM, IBM Storage.
